    India is a ‘holding together’ type of federation. This means certain states enjoy more powers than others. Article 371 mentions states with special powers, like - Nagaland, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya. These states enjoy special powers due to their peculiar social and historical circumstances.

    Their unique culture is protected by prohibiting Indians, who are not permanent residents of these states, from buying land. The indigenous people of these states also enjoy preferential employment in government services.

    A group of people protest in Delhi against the scrapping of Article 370 which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir | Arvind Jain

    The Centre on Monday scrapped Article 370, which granted special provisions

    to Jammu and Kashmir , and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories—Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. This would mean that laws under the Indian Constitution will be applicable to Jammu and Kashmir.

    Apart from Jammu and Kashmir, special provisions have been provided to some other states under the Constitution of India, listed in Articles 371 and 371(A-J). While Articles 370 and 371 have been a part of the Constitution since January 26, 1950, Articles 371(A-J) were incorporated through amendments under Article 368, which lays down the power of the Parliament to amend the Constitution and procedure therefor.

    States that have special provisions under Article 371(A-J):

    Article 371 – Maharashtra and Gujarat

    Governors of the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat are given special responsibilities to set up development boards in regions such as Vidarbha, Marathwada, Kutchh etc.

    Article 371A – Nagaland

    Article 371A of the Constitution mainly states that no act of Parliament would apply to the state of Nagaland in matter relating to religious or social practices of Nagas, Naga customary law and procedure, administration of civil or criminal justice involving decisions according to Naga customary law and ownership and transfer of land and its resources. The Legislative Assembly of Nagaland must pass a resolution for an act to be applicable to the state.

    The governor is given special responsibilities with respect to law and order in the state as well.

    Article 371B – Assam

    According to the special provision under Article 371B, the president may provide for the Constitution and functions of a committee of Legislative Assembly of the state consisting of members elected from the tribal areas of Assam.

    Article 371C – Manipur

    The special provision under Article 371C in the case of Manipur is similar to 371B for Assam. Here, too, the president may provide for the Constitution and functions of a committee of Legislative Assembly of the state, but consisting of members elected from the hill areas of Manipur.

    The governor must submit an annual report to the president regarding the administration of hill areas as well.

    Article 371D & E – Andhra Pradesh

    Article 371D, which was added to the Constitution in 1974, provides equitable opportunities and facilities for the people of the state and safeguards their rights in matters of employment and education. The state government may organise civil posts or direct recruitment to posts in local cadre as required.

    Article 371E states that the Parliament may by law provide for the establishment of a University in Andhra Pradesh.

    Article 371F – Sikkim

    Article 371F was incorporated into the Constitution in 1975. It states that the Legislative Assembly shall consist of not less than 30 members. In order to protect the rights and interests of the different sections of the population in the state of Sikkim, seats in the assembly are provided to people of these different sections.

    Article 371G – Mizoram

    The Legislative Assembly of the state of Mizoram must consist of not less than 40 members. In addition, following the same provisions as Nagaland, an act of Parliament would not apply to Mizoram in matters relating to religious or social practices of Mizo, Mizo customary law and procedure, administration of civil or criminal justice involving decisions according to Mizo customary law, ownership and transfer of land and its resources.
